Second Time Receiving This Alocasia From Mental Houseplants and I'm Just as Impressed!

This is my second time around receiving this same plant but this time in a bulk order. I received 16 perfect plants, including 1 Alocasia Regal Shield, that were delivered in a record breaking 119° heat in PHX, AZ! All 16 plants, including the 1 Alocasia Regal Shield, were in absolutely astonishing condition. They have made such a great living wall in my plant room! I couldn’t be happier. Plants were also pest free and healthy! 10/10 recommend Mental Houseplants!
